Clever creations for the wife, mother, or daughter in your life
For the cold weather, my daughter has started wearing my sweaters, also starting a fashion trend called "wear dad's sweaters to school day."
I also liked Van Sickle's festive holiday leggings, red and green and ready for almost any dress, skirt, or shorts. "They're among my very favorites," Quinn told me. She also introduced a Van Sickle exclusive: Signature line skirt, tunic, and dress-ready tops so self-supporting they don't require a bra. "They're our current pride and joy," owner Suzanne Van Sickle told me.
I walked out of Van Sickle with a gift for my daughter: the cutest, cleverest, most adorable fashion accessory I've seen in a while made by Van Sickle intern Allia Rahman. It was one of those items I bought the minute I saw it, since as we dads and husbands know, the women in our lives aren't always easy to buy for.
You see the right gift, and you land on it! And like everything else at Van Sickle, it was very reasonably priced. What is it? Can't tell. Santa says that's strictly hush hush until opening day.
